Undergraduate juniors and seniors may apply.

During the summer, Grin City invites ten to twelve college-aged writers, visual or performance artists for one of two month-long sessions. Those eligible for the Emerging Artist Residency are juniors or seniors in college at the time of application. Applicants from Iowa colleges and universities are given special consideration.
Ideal candidates have a strong portfolio and are serious about pursuing a career in their field for which they are applying, but do not need to have majored in it. They embrace artistic and work-based collaboration, and have an interest in community engagement. Interest in local foods and/or agriculture is a plus, but is by no means required.
